Well Folks:

A silly question but has anyone tried to order a Livewire One Rear Fender and put it on the Harley Livewire to get rid of the hole in the back section.

I would love to swap mine out in case I get stuck on wet roads. I don’t want my clothing getting all the road crap on it.

If it is a direct fit (no modifications) where do I get one being in Canada

Thanks kindly

Bill Kemp

I think I read somewhere on here it was a direct bolt on. I am thinking about that too. I saw some creative ways to fit it as well. Someone makes a plug. I also saw someone cover the hole with a clear plastic sheet and then put a HD decal in the middle. Looked far better than I thought it might.

I plan on doing something as well.

I have looked on the forums and can't find this topic about a direct swap. I called Harley -Davidson and left a message asking for clarification about the parts being interchangeable. If or when I hear back I will post the reply.

Wait you HD fans can't be messing with the purity of your original LW's can you? I mean that whole is all part of the original HD experience. ;) Don't mind me and my "electric goldwing". The HD way is the way...

The two things I don’t like on my HD LW is the hole in the rear fender and the stupid mirrors.

I realize that by law they have to have mirrors on the bikes, but at least put some on that you can actually use to see more than just your arms.

Presently I have mine upside down in order to make them usable.

I used the $15 mirror extenders and I am happy with being able to see behind me nicely. Also keeps the mirrors closer to my line of sight rather than looking down any more than necessary.

I never planned on riding in the rain with the LW but so many people water their lawns excessively, a lot of the intersections I have to cross are wet with pretty deep water. As a result, I am getting a lot more crap from the hole in the fender than I originally thought I might have to deal with. So whenever winter finally gets here, I'll be doing something with the rear fender.

Update:

I contacted HD as well as the Livewire One companies and asked about the Livewire One Rear Fender being a drop in part.

I was advised that they are and also available to purchase from the Livewire.com website.

The part number and price is:

Rear Livewire One fender
Part number 59501010
$300.23 US

Just wanted to update those that are thinking the same as me.

In regards to mirror extensions HD says that the only mirror extensions that fit the HD Livewire are chrome colored ones and not black.

Livewire One says that they do not have mirror extensions for their bikes.

Thank you for the update Bill

As late as last week I asked at the Harley shop in London (UK not Canada) and the LiveWire one rear fender was not available to order, so your news is welcome.

That said, my original LiveWire has an Original Eric (TM) rear fender blank which keeps me dry and is carbon fibre so it fits with the other bits. There is also a plain blank for sale on eBay which looks like a nice job - not as stylish as Eric's - and sticks quickly with self-adhesive strips.

Good to know the fender is a direct fit but I’m still curious if HD could explain why the hole is there in the first place. Possibly to reduce wind resistance?

I did it in May and it was an absolute no-brainer! See my earlier posts in another thread here: Rear hugger cut out - any one found an off the shelf...

$255.20 US for the fender (with my MVP discount and no sales/VAT tax since New Hampshire) and honestly not more than 15 minutes of "labor" (most of that time spent finding the right torx wrench and cleaning things up.

Here's a link to another thread that has pix of what I did about my mirrors:

Since I'm wider than average I needed to use the H-D and Krator extensions to have a useful rear view.
